Our holiday gifts were barely opened last year before the major carriers began planning for this season’s gigantic logistical undertaking. By the time 2017 arrives, millions of parcels will have crisscrossed Canada to reach their happy recipients.
Couriers like FedEx, UPS, Purolator, DHL, and Aramex are geared up to meet the challenge and are ready for shipping in Canada this holiday season.
Are you as ready as they are?
Putting together a holiday shipping schedule is not unlike completing a puzzle. Customers count on you to get their gift orders to them in time for the holidays. And if they’re anything like us, they are likely to think of a few last-minute must-haves.
The more prepared you are; in other words, the faster you can process their orders, the more likely you will be to meet the Canadian holiday shipping deadlines―and score big with thankful customers.
To get ready, make sure you:

12/5/2016 UPS Update:
Due to the high volume of shipping, UPS has announced that the number of packages that need to be picked-up must be specified (you can do this on eShipper after placing your order). Also, UPS is only picking up packages with pick-up confirmation numbers.
So that everything goes smoothly, please be sure to specify the number of packages for pick-up, and that you have pick-up confirmation numbers for your packages. This can all be done via eShipper.
